Hello all!

Happy to enable the volunteered coordinators and their fellow co-linguists to start translating fresh languages: Estonian (coordinator @krs), Lithuanian (@sledges), Serbian Cyrillic (@saleki), Tatar (@aserg), and Turkish (@jiit)

They've got the most work to do (≤10% in Transifex or yet completely untranslated), hence getting the headstart.

Transifex migration (for languages with >10% and a volunteered coordinator) is still under way (proving to be more challenging than I thought, but no major blockers left).

The rule for all the rest of barely-started (≤10% in Transifex) languages to be added stays the same: please volunteer to coordinate, and remember, this is a commitment, yet you'll be able to grow your team of coordinators when you approach the best and most active translators as time passes.

So, do not be ambiguous: "I would like to give a hand/I would like to contribute translations" keeps me guessing if you want to be a coordinator or not, hence only 5 languages are being added as of today (2016-06-29) :)

Please open TJC tickets and mention your coordinator for each dubious case of your language; especially when you want to make a terminology change. Don't be a mass-suggest-and-run translator ^-^

Let's do this right, let's do it together \o/

Hi all, I would suggest you all start by translating the Terminology project as it will help you with your translation work later on as well. Thanks! Jarkko

Thanks! Still, it says "Insufficient rights to access this page" when I click on language :)

@sledges Which languages are in the "(for languages with >10% and a volunteered coordinator) " group?

I have asked to translate for the Greek language but i don't see the language available yet. Could you please add the Greek language and assign me as coordinator ?
